That depends on how you're going to get there.. are you going to be taking I-95 to Bangor, then down through Ellsworth, etc., to get there; or are you taking US Route 1 all the way up the coast?

There are some breweries right in Bar Harbor (check the list above).

Other good breweries: Allagash (Portland), Black Bear (brewpub in Orono), Gritty McDuff's (brewpub Portland, Freeport and Lewiston... I like the Freeport location best)... Sea Dog (brewpub in various locations.. the one in Bangor is nice.)

If you do make it to Bangor, I STRONGLY recommend you visit Nocturnum Drafthaus on 56 Main St. The owner, Gene, is not only a homebrewer, but he's featuring something like 14 beers on tap, including casks and lambics. The tap list from Saturday:

He gets his hands on a lot of stuff that no one else even bothers with. And let him know Jonny B sent ya. ;-)

Hope you enjoy your stay. :-)

I live here in Bar Harbor and while at one point we boasted three microbreweries in a town with a year round pop. of 5000 we are down to one very good one right now. The Atlantic Brewing company have a great selection of ales and lagers, their beer is in every bar and restaurant in the area. The brewery has a beer garden with a barbecue operation that is a great way to spend an afternoon. I live about 100 yards from the brewery; email me when you get here - I will join you.
